Outstanding stout. A little thin but the smell and taste are a knockout.

Poured from a growler purchased tonight. This pours a little thin yet pitch black color with a small short lived tan head. The smells are of roasted malts, some vanilla, a little sweetness. The feel is medium, a little thin for a stout, low carbonation. The taste is okay, good for Amarillo but not comparable to the big breweries. The taste is of vanilla perhaps artificial, some roasted malts the high AVB is hidden.

Appearance: Dark brown with good foam and lacing. A tad bit thin, but a nice complement to a Big Texan steak.

Smell: Caramel malt from what I remember. Didn't get a great idea, but enough to know it was pretty good.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Coffee with an alcoholic whiskey bite in the background. Goes down a bit like whiskey as well.

Overall Drinkability: I would definitely try this again.

Thanks to tizzlejizzle for sharing this growler.

The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of roasted malt and a light amount of whiskey. The flavor is similar. Up front I get some bourbon whiskey and oak notes, which are complimented by some roasted malt and chocolate. I also get some vanilla, but it tastes a bit artificial. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.
